This is something I posted on another forum. It has some ideas of things we can do in light of pending illegal gun legislation. 1) Join the NRA and GOA. Put aside petty differences with those groups if you have a problem with them. 2) Write your congressman anyhow. It takes 5 minutes and make a call. At least you let them know your position. 3) Organize! Maybe we need to sticky this thread or make a new one to see who can participate online as well as face to face. Freedomworks has a good website for getting people together. 4) Become a true gun advocate. Find someone that has never shot and offer to teach them. Start them off as you would a child but don't talk down to them. Education is our best friend as is the truth. 5) Be helpful and friendly. Too many times people see us posting or talking about the government coming to get our guns and how we would respond. That is fine amongst our brethren but it doesn't sit well with the average person. Offer to educate instead of denigrate. Many people are a couple generations away from knowing anything about guns or being around guns. Some are just stubborn asses but some are just genuinely uneducated about them. If we take the time to be helpful we may have a convert! 6) Most of all I think we need to network. Many of us have different opinions on politics, guns, cars, humor or whatever but it is clear we value our firearms and the safety they provide. Instead of moving to the right or left lets move towards the constitution. Can we setup a rally somewhere? I would be willing to go. Lets show Washington we are not going to give up. 1 million gun owners? Dare to dream! In addition contacting your local tea parties might be a good place to start there are also 9-12 groups that are pro-constitution. So, anything to add? Any ideas short of armed conflict? God forbid we need to resort to that but if we network and stick together at least we have our militia. Anyhow, JMHO.
